Yes, for 22-250! Not my choice for .338 Win Mag. H4831SC is my go to powder my .270 AI, .300 Win Mag and .338 Win Mag.

By any chance do you own a reloading book? If not, it's an excellent investment.

Re: 338 win mag (US 869)

Us 869 good for 338 Lapua

Suggest Reloader 19 for 225 grain or Reloader 17 in 338 Win Mag

Reloader 22 for 250's or H4831

285 made for Lapua not 338 Win Mag

225 very good in 338 Win Mag
